    Totally confused about the new GAP. Have daughter who is mentally challenged and cannot handle long waits in line. Always been able to get GAP on trips but now the way it is explained, it does not seem worth it. Help?

    Hi Deborah!

    Welcome back to Walt Disney World!  I think you definitely will want to obtain the new Disability Access Service (DAS) Card for your Princess.  The new Disability Access Service (DAS) Card is a modification of the Guest Assistance Card that you have previously used. It is designed with your daughter's needs specifically in mind and she will not have to wait in the queue while waiting for her attraction time.

    Here is a link for a downloadable pdf for the Disability Access Service (DAS) Card.  Another useful link is from the Disney Parks Blog which contains a Disability Access Service Card Fact Sheet.  At the bottom of the Disney Parks Blog link, note there is a phone number to contact disability services should you have more questions.

    The biggest update you will find with the DAS is that your daughter will receive a return time for an attraction based on the current wait time.  You may continue on exploring the park until it is her return time.  One nice feature is that you do not have to return at the exact time listed, it will be valid until redeemed by your daughter.  Keep in mind that you still may use the FastPass+ system in addition to the features of the DAS card. 

    I hope this helps ease your mind about planning your special trip with your Princess.  If you still have questions about it, please don't hesitate to write back to us! 

    Here is to wishing you and your daughter a very magical and Pixie Dusted vacation!
